Also try without your external sd card, without your sim card, anf wuthout both. I know it may sound odd, but its worth trying.
Sent from my SGH-T999L using XDA Premium 4 mobile app
So I went into the Stock Recovery and did a Factory/Cache reset.
Holy Chocolate Milk Batman! I've rebooted the device 6 times now and no glitch at all! Now that was without a SIM and SD Card.
Trying it with the SIM/SD in...Booted fine the first time...Second time it rebooted itself once right after the initial boot. 3rd and 4th rebooted fine!
This is great! Now I can put my S2 away! Hahaha
Doc for the brain storming!
It really didn't make sense that the phone would boot into Recovery/Download and flash and ODIN firmware, but not boot! It must have had a bad breakfast one morning...
I guess the TWRP recovery format function for the internal SD wasn't really a format?
